Rustic Hoplodrina blanda ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775)
Status .....Quite a widespread Nottinghamshire moth, although there seem to be few records from the south-west of the county. Rustic is very similar to Uncertain and the two species can appear to be quite similar. However, once seen in daylight (and even under bright MV light) Rustic is quite obviously different with experience.
